Nutritional counseling with Dr. Kim Maycock and the team at Chiropractic Wellness Center in Gillette, WY can benefit your entire body – from the inside out.
Why Do Chiropractors Include Nutritional Counseling in Treatment Plans?
It might seem odd to talk to the “back doctor” about nutrition, but nutritional counseling is a common and vital part of many chiropractic treatment plans. Why is this and how does what you eat impact your spinal health and wellness? Dr. Maycock and the team at Chiropractic Wellness Center in Gillette, WY answer these questions and more in the facts below.
Chiropractors Are Holistic Doctors
Chiropractors aren’t just concerned with your skeletal system – they are concerned with your overall health. And as what you take in has a direct impact on your overall health, providing nutritional guidance fits right into the chiropractic approach.
Nutritional Counseling Helps With Weight Loss
Each body is best able to support a specific range of weight. When you exceed this amount, it can put undue pressure on the spine, joints, discs, and more. If your weight is contributing to your pain and suffering, your chiropractor will provide the recommendations necessary to change this factor.
Food Has Healing Power
Various types of vitamins, nutrients, and minerals can be very useful in recovering from injuries. For example, many have anti-inflammatory properties, which can reduce your pain and help your body heal naturally. Your chiropractor can recommend specific types of food and supplements to help you achieve these benefits.
It Can Improve Your Mood and Energy
Fueling your body properly can help fight anxiety, depression, stress, and fatigue. In addition to aiming for holistic wellness, chiropractors are aware of the effects such issues can have on the musculoskeletal system.
For instance, stress can cause tension in the neck and shoulders, and fatigue can cause you to forego proper posture and smart lifting techniques. Eating well can help you avoid injuries related to such issues.
These are just a few examples of how nutritional counseling is used in chiropractic care. To learn more or to experience the difference it can make in your life, schedule an appointment with Dr. Maycock at Chiropractic Wellness Center in Gillette, WY by calling (307) 682-4000.
